Meeting old friends from school would be very fun. It is inconceivable the excitement of remembering the past, especially considering the mischief and pranks that had been done before. Careful planning is essential when calling out for a reunion no matter how grand or how simple it may be.
How to Plan a Class Reunion
Social media is a great way to create a good list of previous classmates and batchmates. You can make a list and contact them from there. You can also use YouTube (YouTube views kaufen) to upload an announcement of the upcoming reunion.
So if you are planning a reunion but are constrained by costs? Just consider the following tips.
1. Choose the Committee.
Be sure to choose people who want to work hard with sincerity. Keep in mind that being a reunion committee can take time and energy. Note that the committee is not going to be paid for the work they do. It’s purely voluntary.
In fact, you usually have to pay your own costs, such as transportation to the meeting place or personal consumption. Therefore, it is very important to form a committee that is ready to dedicate itself during the preparation period until the event is held.
2. Pay Attention to Alumni Lists.
One of the most important factors in a reunion is the attendance of the event attendees. The more people who can come, of course, the better.
The committee can use social media to collect data from school friends or community friends, depending on what reunion they want to hold.
3. Choose a Time
School holidays (around June – July) are often chosen as the time of the big reunion because at that time friends who live outside the city or abroad can return home. But, at the same time, at that time many families also decided to take a vacation out of town or abroad.
Therefore, it is better to set a reunion date at least 6 months before H. So everyone has the time to set their own plans.
4. Ideal Places To Hold A Reunion
Your old school will definitely allow you to use the school halls and school grounds. After all, it is the most ideal place to hold reunions. Certainly, many friends have rarely been to school since graduating and they will be passionate about visiting my beloved alma mater. On the other hand, the use of school halls will also cut event costs significantly.
But, if your reunion is not too large, for example only with classmates, a local restaurant can be an option. What needs to be done, just order a place based on the number of people who confirm will come.
Each person only has to pay for their food and drinks. There are no additional fees. Or, just make a potluck reunion party at a friend’s house. Make a list of who will bring what and make sure there is a small committee that will help decorate or arrange the house.
5. Smart Send Invitations.
Forget invitations sent manually via post. Besides requiring more time, this method also requires more costs. Just take advantage of social media to preach this event to friends.
You can create a Fanpage on Facebook or make an invitation online. Today many sites provide free online invitation services.
6. Find Sponsors.
In finding funds, use the alumni to become a sponsor. As a “reply”, you can put a logo or mention the sponsor’s brand in the middle of the event or included in the event book.
This can be one way to get funds. Do not set the price too high so that more brands or products will want to place their advertisements in your reunion event book. Prepare also barter offers.
For example, a half-page color advertisement is bartered with 4 hotel vouchers.
7. Determine the Event.
If the reunion you hold only includes one batch, take advantage of different alumni graduation years as performers, from MCs, photographers, to entertainment. Maybe you still have to pay a fee to pay for their services, but not as much as if you hire a professional service.
To enliven the event, music is required. Don’t be too ambitious to bring a famous DJ or group. Just prepare a CD containing a collection of songs that triumphed when you were in school.
Ask one friend to be the person in charge of choosing the song and making sure the music continues playing at the venue.
After seeing these tips, hopefully, your reunion plan will run smoothly.
